E147 - Alex Scott: Walking into the light

Alex Scott MBE is a sports presenter, pundit and former professional football player. She played for Arsenal and made 140 appearances for the England women’s national football team. In this episode, Alex reveals how she has dealt with fear from her childhood and through her career - witnessing abuse and being vilified through social media - and how her mindset has enabled her to reach a place of freedom. 


She reflects on the most crucial aspects of leadership, teamwork and understanding her self-worth. What is a strong leader? How can leaders create a place where everyone feels valued?


Alex's book 'How (Not) To Be Strong' is out now.
